15-year-old hit by car in Dearborn hospitalized in critical condition

A teenager is fighting for his life after being hit by a car in Dearborn.

The frightening Dearborn crash scene took place at Schaefer and Paul streets which left the teen in critical condition, is a sight auto mechanic Ziad Moh won’t soon forget.

"It was very sad. Still a young boy," he said. "I don’t look at him as much as a teenager. I think sometimes my son could be there. It’s very sad."

He was tending to business when he witnessed the aftermath.

"We were working inside and all the sudden the police cars, you could hear police cars, fire, EMS came over," he said.

Dearborn Police say a 15-year-old boy had just gotten hit by a car while crossing the street not using the cross walk, near Riverside West Academy.

The right lane stopped - but cars in the left center lane kept going when the boy got hit on Schaefer.

"EMS came in and load him up on a car and they took him," Moh said.

Police say this was not a hit-and-run. The chief says the driver stopped right away and is cooperating.

Investigators are still looking for that driver.
